1. I used up the rest of the scientific cabbage
Last week, Sonia and I got assigned a lab that involved using red cabbage to make a pH indicator. We used almost the whole head for science, but there was a small bit left.
So, I chopped it up, added some dressing, and ate it as a side for my lunch yesterday.
2. I made a use-it-up dinner
We had flatbread pizzas, using flatbreads and pepperoni we’d gotten from the once-a-month food pantry we volunteer with.
(they have limited storage so if we don’t take the extras, they get thrown out)
I also made a BBQ chicken flatbread pizza, using some leftover roasted chicken from the night before.
3. I used grapefruit zest in my oatmeal
Thanks to a reader tip, I’d been adding orange zest. So good.
This week, I was out of oranges (already tried lemon peel. Not so good in oatmeal!), but I did find a grapefruit in the back of the fruit drawer.
I tried the zest in one serving of oatmeal and liked it, so I zested the whole thing and used it in my oats over the course of the week.
4. I taped up my earbuds
Our cat has an unfortunate fascination with earbud cords; I usually remember to put mine out of reach, but she found them one morning.
Mr. FG managed to grab them before she’d shredded the cord, so there was just very minor damage to the cord. I taped it up with electrical-safe tape and it’s working fine.
5. Sonia used a 40% off coupon at Jo-Ann’s
She needed some elastic for a sewing project, and as we were heading to checkout, I said, “Oh, let me see if I have a coupon on the app.”
And she said, “Oh, I already loaded one on my phone!”
So then I was a proud mom.
